It is actually a 5 fin setup but im planning on using it for a quad but i can switch to a thruster. Would i be better off with a thruster in the bigger surf?

dude your deffiently tallking about the same exact round nose fish that i have you could switch between quad and thruster... i got it at brave new world in point im pretty sure... the 5'10 rides nice and it can handle head high but if your looking to surf head i wouldnt get it but if your surfing jersey all the time then getit because the waves are rarely head-overhead besides winter and im sure you have other boards to ride on those days.. but i recromend it but i would go smaller if you could

and i'd definatly go smaller.... i know the east coast is pretty mushy, but 5'10" is HUGE... i'd go 5'7" (actually, ...Lost makes a 5'7" 5-fin )

i have a 5'10 quad. i wasnt too happy with how my old lost rnf held up. so lightly glassed. i would go with more of a retro style, heavy glassing larger swallow and such. i ride mine in head to overhead waves no problem. sometimes i need to jazz up the fins to a size larger tho when it gets big. really a great investment because you can ride it in anything
I surf a fish year round in top to bottom waves and slow rolling surf and I love it. They do have some limitations in bigger hollow waves but man what a glide. I am 6'1" 205lbs and ride a 6'0". I could go smaller.I think a 5'10 sounds too big for someone of your size. I have even heard people say mine isnt a real fish because it is 6' long I would go with a twin keel, really loose in turns but flies down the line with some pumping. Twin keels have more bite than twin fins with the smaller fins like they were in the early 80's. I have no trouble holding in the pocket or going verticle on the right wave. Visit this site, I will never buy another fish other than one shaped by this man http://zippifish.wordpress.com/zippifish-surfboards/ . Just look at my moniker .
